Applicant Assessment With Prevue - Why It's Priceless
By Doris Lowell
Peter Drucker the noted management consultant said, "Chances are good
that up to 66% of your companies hiring decisions will prove to be
mistakes in the first 12 months." And when you consider the potential
cost of a mis-hire can be as much as three-times the persons salary you
really shouldn't be gambling on gut-instincts and decisions you made in
the first five minutes of the interview.
If a typical new hire salary is $40,000 then you are risking $120,000 if you don't take steps to improve the hiring process within your company. The simplest way to do this is to first ensure you use an accredited and reputable recruitment and talent management company. The second way to reduce the risk is to ensure the firm uses scientifically proven applicant assessments.
A common myth is that applicant's can 'game' or outsmart the assessments. A properly constructive assessment makes “faking it” highly unlikely. To ensure validity and reliability, the applicant's responses are calibrated throughout the process by specially designed multi-dimensional questions developed specifically by highly trained industrial and occupational psychologists.
Prevue Applicant Assessment
Prevue is a valid, reliable, objective and integrated assessment designed for business environments. With Prevue's integrate assessments tools you can measure applicant's capacity to learn, and the applicant's speed of learning. You can determine what motivates the applicant and what their interests truly are. The Prevue system also assesses applicant personality and behaviours.
Prevue generates five different reports making applicant review and selection a breeze. The 'Selection Report' is designed to assist with selection, hiring and promotion decisions.
